    Rear wheel arch spats

    I am thinking about fitting some of these to my Classic Replica Viper body.

    Does anyone know where I could source some from?

    I have seen that Europa sell them, but have no idea if they would fit or not

    Do you mean stone guards on the front face of the rear arches ?

    I think you’ll find Gary they are model specific. I haven’t heard of any interchangeability between different manufacturers. I did approach a local ex-Aston body guy who was going to make me some but he said it would have been better prior to painting. If you do strike lucky let me know and I’ll buy a pair. Is it worth contacting Bob Busbridge to see if he’s got any or a pattern?

    As Dek says they are not necessarily interchangeable. I got some Dax ones for my Pilgrim once but no chance were they going to fit.

    I believe Europa Car Spares do them in aluminium which is a soft malleable material. Perhaps a pair of these could be reshaped and trimmed by a friendly shop with an English Wheel? As long as there is sufficient metal this should be doable. But iff they are too small then back to square one. I don't think they have invented putting on files yet.
